Remember Republican blogger Erick Erickson of Redstate who recently was about to pop in cap in someone for taking away his right to use phosphate laden dishwater detergent. Its turns out he has a secret liberal environmentalist streak. He’s raving about the public transportation available to those attending the new tea smokers events at the Grand Hyatt Buckhead in Atlanta,
* $109.00 room rate at the Grand Hyatt Buckhead in Atlanta. It’s one of the nicest hotels in the city and that is an amazing rate. It is very near MARTA, the public transportation system, on a straight line from Atlanta’s airport.
MoveOn and American Progress are fine progressive organizations, but as much as it pains me to say it, Republicans are better at recruiting liberals then liberals.

No one understood those interviews she did on CBS and ABC or the local press in Alaska, so the book is basically about not believing your lying eyes. Also noted that her publisher did not ask for a written sample of the substance of what said book might be. Merit, orphaned again by a conservative.
